2 Leave a comment on paragraph 2 0 antiquity, but have doubtless been renewed many times, as have also been the plaster statues and frescoes. The architecture of the interior is heavy, clumsy, and very plain, the columns and walls being covered with dingy plaster. The exterior is Brick dingy and rough.

3 Leave a comment on paragraph 3 0 Our next visit was to the church of St. Ursula erected in the 17th century. Placed around the church (inside) are pigeon holes with glass fronts, about the highth [sic] of my head, said to contain the bones of 11000 virgins who were murdered at Cologne on their return from a pilgrimage to Rome with Ursula an English Princess, we saw some bones, but have our doubts. Our courier facetiously remarks that its very easy to get bones in Cologne.  

4 Leave a comment on paragraph 4 0 There are ten paintings about 3 x 4 ft in cheap black frames and at first reminds one of the pictures sometimes seen in Lager- bier saloons, but upon being informed that they are over 600 years old, painted on slate, the interest in them revives a little and you stop to examine the comparative proficiency of the “old masters”.

5 Leave a comment on paragraph 5 0 The same plain plastered dingy walls, the same heavy style of architecture.
